Hey guys. I machined a few UVC sanitizer dongles. What do you think ?
2.5A 265nm UV light. Very powerful to the size.
The only thing I don't recommend using it longer than 5 min since it start to heat up.

Wondering if there would be any advantage to making it reversible so that it could be mounted flipped as well? For example in your demo video I might prefer the emitters facing outward.

Just a thought. Very nice work.

Yeah it's a good idea. Thanks !

Here are some pics of the Irradiance of the LEDs. I used two different meters to measure, one being more sensitive in the 265nm - 280nm range. Below is some readings with one of the meters:

I'm gonna see if I can incorporate this into a interior foiled/reflective lunch bag and see if I can make a ghetto UVC sanitizing bag for keys, phones, masks, etc. I suspect that the irradiance might be too low for the distance/volume of the lunch bag to be effective at relatively short run times.

if it will cure gel nail varnish as well, that`s another market for you! ;)
